LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) -- Jordy Johnson caught two touchdown passes -- his only receptions of the night -- and kicker Blake Bercegay accounted for 11 points as McNeese State remained undefeated Saturday with a 41-14 victory over Central Arkansas.

McNeese (11-0, 7-0 Southland) never trailed, and led 24-7 at halftime.

Kris Bush, who finished with 80 yards on 15 carries to lead all rushers, opened scoring with a 4-yard touchdown with 9:44 left in the first quarter, and Johnson caught a 14-yard pass from Derrick Fourroux about five minutes later.

A 27-yard field goal by Bercegay and a 13-yard pass from Mark Fontenot to Johnson bookended UCA's only score of the first half, an 11-yard touchdown run by Brent Grimes, who finished with 62 yards on 12 carries.

Bercegay, who made all five of his extra point attempts, opened scoring in the second half with a 44-yard field goal, and Elrick Jones plunged 1 yard for a touchdown with 1:22 in the quarter.

In the fourth quarter, Charles Twilley caught a 5-yard touchdown pass from Nathan Brown for UCA, and the Cowboys' Heely Hubbard ran 1 yard for the final touchdown.

Brown made 23 of 39 passes for 253 yards with one interception; he also rushed three times for 13 yards.

Fourroux finished 6-for-10 with 108 yards passing and another 70 yards on 10 carries, while Fontenot was 3-5 for 38 yards passing.
